Our diversity and inclusion programs guide leaders to examine their assumptions and unconscious bias by heightening awareness about the often invisible dimensions of difference. Leaders gain deeper awareness and heightened cultural competence necessary to sustain transformative behavior in the workplace.


Our White Men’s Caucus and White Men & Allies Labs are rigorous and transformative experiences. Leaders engage across workplace differences—ethnicity, gender, race, sexual orientation or other difference—to develop partnership skills that deepen dialogue and impact the workplace. Read More

nwnaturalThrough its Learning Labs, WMFDP creates a tremendous environment for engaging employees in open, honest, and active conversations about diversity and inclusion.  A critical foundation is that diversity is not just based on what someone looks or sounds like, but what someone has experienced.  These elements manifest themselves as diversity of thought.  The Learning Labs have opened doors for on-going conversations that capture the richness that diversity of thought offers for our Company.

jeanine-primeIt’s a fact: we can’t promote inclusion while excluding white men. WMFDP understands this all too well.  With decades of experience, few are as skilled as Bill Proudman and Michael Welp at empowering white men to be full partners in the creation of inclusive work climates. Catalyst is proud to call them our partners in helping companies fully realize the goal of inclusion.

office_of_equityThe White Men & Allies Learning Lab I attended was impactful on so many levels. As a Black man, it ultimately allowed me to better understand how White men hear and interpret conversations around race. As a man, it allowed me to better understand the multitude of privileges afforded me solely because of my gender, and how women are detrimentally impacted in the workplace and in the world. As a husband and father, it allowed me to better “listen to understand” and lean-in to my vulnerability as a means of strength. I entered the process a skeptic, I came out completely impressed with the method and manner of the facilitation and outcomes that were achieved.
